World’s 10 Largest Shopping Mall

Posted on 08. Aug, 2007 by in General

Before I read this, I never really know about this at all. Now that I came across this article, I am really interested to know which 10 malls would be the world’s largest shopping mall in the world.

Read on.

10 shopping malls rank as the world’s largest, based on the amount of “Gross Leasable Area” – the number of square feet the property has for revenue-generating activities like retail, dining and amusements. Asia is home to eight of the world’s 10 largest malls, six of which were built in the last three years. Rankings are based on statistics from Eastern Connecticut State University, which compliles data from mall management companies.

World's Largest Mall

South China Mall
Location: Dongguan, China

Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 7.1 million square feet
In the Chinese mall arms race, this facility opened a year after the Golden Resources Mall to displace it as the country’s and the world’s largest. The space includes wind milss and theme parks, plus a replica of the Arc de Triomphe.

World's Largest Mall

Golden Resources Shopping Mall
Location: Beijing, China
Year Opened: 2004

Not sprawling, this is a stackep-up five story mall. Approximately 1,000 stores, selling plenty of familar global brands like Nike and DKNY. A truly ambitious real estate project, with new apartments and offices, surround the mall. A tough location outside the heart of the city has resulted in disappointing traffic from foreign tourists.

SM Mall of Asia
Location: Pasay City, Philippines
Year Opened: 2006
Gross Leasable Area: 4.2 million square feet
Includes the first Olympic-sized swimming pool and first IMAX theater in the Philippines. Spread over four buildings, customers can get around on a 20-seat tram

World's Largest Mall

West Edmonton Mall
Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Year Opened: 1981
Gross Leasable Area: 3.8 million square feet
The biggest in North America, the West Edmonton Mall has over 800 stores, along with attractions like a water park, skating rink, casino and rides.

Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet
Built with an adjacent hotel and convention center. In addition to over 1,000 retail shops, the mall includes a 12-story-high roller coaster, plus a pool, skating rink and “Cosmo’s World,” a children’s theme park.

World's Largest Mall

Beijing Mall
Location: Beijing, China
Year Opened: 2005
Gross Leasable Area: 3.4 million square feet
The first real suburban mall in China, located about an hour from downtown Beijing, this center has four levels with parking for 8,000 cars, plus a man-made beach. Bootlegged DVDs of American movies are a top seller.

World's Largest Mall

Zhengjia Plaza
Location: Guangzhou, China

Has been known to attract over half a million shoppers on a good day. Another mixed-use space, the mall has a hotel and office tower in addition to retail stores.

World's Largest Mall

SM City North Edsa
Location: Quezon City, Philippines
Year Opened: 1985
Gross Leasable Area: 3 million square feet
The first major “mega mall” built by SM Prime Holdings, which now claims three of the largest 10 in the world. It’s a five-story complex that boasts over 100 retail outlets and restaurants, along with 12 cinemas, a bowling alley and skating rink. An IMAX theater could be added soon.

World's Largest Mall

King of Prussia Mall
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Year Opened: 1962
Gross Leasable Area: 2.8 million square feet
This product of the original U.S. mall building surge in the early 1960s still survives on the top 10 list, at least until the next big project goes up in Asia. Billing itself as the “premier shopping destination on the East Coast,” this mall takes advantage of its location right off the Pennsylvania Turnpike to draw shoppers from New York, New Jersey and Maryland to its 400 stores. Despite a lack of theme parks and other modern amenities, package deals with Radisson Hotels and cross-marketing with nearby attractions like the Revolutionary War encampment at Valley Forge draw out-of-state shoppers looking to get away for a day or two.

    Haha… Aren’t newborn’s feet the sewetest things ever? It’s before cheese gets involved. LOL! What’s funny is that my best girlfriend and I were hanging out last night and I touched her foot by mistake with mine and she flipped. LOL! She doesn’t even like her children’s toes touching her. Hilarious.
